7th Circuit Court of Appeals had posted no Indiana opinions by IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
Linzy C. Clark v. State of Indiana
48A04-1104-CR-249
Criminal. Reverses trial court’s denial of Clark’s motion to dismiss the notice of probation violation. After the probation was transferred from Madison County to Tippecanoe County, the Tippecanoe County court held supervisory authority. It received notice of the probation violation, but Madison County – the sentencing court – did not, nor did it file the notice of probation violation within 45 days of receiving the notice of violation.

Jason Jones v. State of Indiana
34A05-1101-CR-66
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class B felony dealing in methamphetamine and Class B misdemeanor visiting a common nuisance. Holds that the trial court did not abuse its discretion by admitting testimony and photographs in lieu of certain physical evidence that had been destroyed by law enforcement officers in accordance with Indiana Code 35-5-5-5. Further, the trial court did not err by allowing a law enforcement officer to testify as a skilled witness regarding the one-pot reaction method of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Gold C. Washington v. State of Indiana (NFP)
79A02-1105-CR-407
Criminal. Reverses sentences for two convictions of Class D felony battery on a child, holding the court abused its discretion by imposing a sentence greater than allowed by statute. Remands for resentencing.  

Aaron Michael Rohr v. State of Indiana (NFP)
40A01-1102-CR-55
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class A felony neglect of a dependent resulting in death, Class B felony aggravated battery and Class B felony battery of a child by an adult causing serious bodily injury.

Indiana Supreme Court and Indiana Tax Court had posted no opinions by IL deadline.

Indiana Supreme Court granted transfer in two cases for the week ending Dec. 2.

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).
